Aspiring to get an M.S. in Chemical Engineering

  1. Feb 26, 2012 #1
    I have an A.S. in Chemistry and a B.S. in Mathematics and I am considering trying to earn a master's degree in chemical engineer. After working for an analytical lab for six months in sample receipt and prep I have spent a lot of time trying to find ways to improve my career. I understand that there is most likely a lot of work and time that I will have to put in to achieve this goal, but I was wondering what I can do to properly prepare myself. I have taken general and organic chemistry and one freshman level engineering class. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Have a look at the websites of some chemical engineering programs you are interested in. They usually have a list of "deficiency courses" for graduates with degrees in other majors that need to be completed to study for and earn a masters degree in chemical engineering.

    With your background, I would guess you would be asked to take about 12-18 semester hours of junior & senior level chemical engineering courses as part of your program.
